Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Review


Testing and Setup:

Testing of this heatsink will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios, where both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage during a period of one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 23 °C throughout testing of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo as well as the comparison units. All the data shown in the graphs below is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Cooler Master will be used during testing and thermal pastes on other heatsinks from their respective manufacturers will be used. The fans on each cooler will be run at full speed for these tests.

Comparison Heatsinks:




What we see here is a completely expected trend, as far as the Hyper 212 Evo's individual results go. Being a direct contact heatpipe cooler, I expected low idle temperatures in both the stock and overclocked scenarios. For the load temperatures, I expected the opposite due to the lesser weight/overall size of the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo compared to the other coolers. Regardless, this cooler put up some great results!
